LoveReading View on I Want a Bedtime Story

After all these years the Little Princess still rules the palace and its inhabitants – including the queen, the admiral and the prime minister. The king is away and she wants a bedtime story, but none of the grown-ups’ stories match her daddy’s (though the gardener’s tale of the carrot who was afraid of the dark sounds good). When she gets that look – perfectly depicted by Tony Ross in facial expression and body language – the maid is called, as she so often is. She takes the Little Princess to the library, full of course of brilliant stories, even the one that daddy always tells and, to her surprise, the Little Princess can read it all by herself. Tony Ross’s understanding of children is as acute as ever, and children and parents will love this. ~ Andrea Reece
